Substance Abuse Counseling

Treatment Philosophy

The Substance Abuse staff believes that recovery from substance abuse or addiction, no matter what the substance of choice, is possible. Recovery from the abuse of substances is also an ongoing and lifelong process.

The staff members realize that making the first call for help may be the hardest, yet most important step an individual may take. Individuals are both congratulated and supported for making that choice. Like other ESCSB services, treatment begins with a thorough understanding of an individual's bio-psycho-social history particularly in light of their history of substance use or abuse.

Following the assessment, most substance abuse treatment is offered in a group format following the Stages of Change Model. This model helps the individual take the necessary steps toward a firm and lasting commitment to changing the behaviors which lead to substance use.

Because recovery is a lifelong commitment, ESCSB staff encourage an individual's participation in 12 step groups in the community.
